While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most

The best way would be to hire a local cab to get there. Read up before hand about the temple and you won't require a guide. Spend about 2 hrs. here. Entry fee is 100 bhat.
